Quick Take: Ravens get pass-happy in preseason

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Thursday's preseason games

» The Ravens' preseason was for passing. Joe Flacco threw 36 passes in a little more than a half of play Thursday. He has now thrown 60 passes in a little more than one full game's worth of snaps in the preseason. Flacco was extremely sharp in this game.

» Ed Reed's backup, Ravens safety Emanuel Cook, will miss the rest of the season with a broken leg.

» Torrey Smith returned from a minor preseason injury to catch eight passes for 103 yards. The buzz in Baltimore all offseason is that Smith made huge strides toward becoming a complete receiver.

» Justin Blackmon is already Jacksonville's best wideout. The biggest surprise with him is that he's making big plays down the field. He's a load to take down after the catch. This is two straight very impressive outings for the former holdout.

» Blaine Gabbert avoided the big mistake, but only led the Jaguars to three points during his two and a half quarters of play.

» We've said it before, but Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings just looks like an NFL starter.
